It’s only 53 days until the start of the
Macworld Conference & Expo
in New York. It’s the 18th year of the expo (including its various sites in NYC, San Francisco and Boston), and there are two special events you may want to mark on your calendar if you’re attending.
On Wednesday, July 17, there’ll be a keynote speech from 9-10:30 a.m. Now if I was going to bet money, I’d lay down odds that Apple CEO Steve Jobs will do the keynote and entertain the audience with his famed reality distortion field. However, that’s not been officially confirmed. But what the conference site does say about the keynote is that it “has a long-standing tradition of delivering high-powered executives that set the pace for the future of the Mac OS platform.”
The next day (Thursday, July 18), there will be a special feature presentation, “The Power of Mac OS X,” in the Special Events Hall from 9:30-10:30 am. Again, the speakers haven’t been announced, but those attending will “learn why the Mac platform will continue to drive innovation and remain the platform of choice for creative professionals, web professionals, educators, consumers, techies and more.”
The keynote and feature presentation are open to Platinum Pass, Super Pass, Macworld/Pro, Macworld/Users, Macworld/Power Tools, Workshop and Hands-on MacLabs attendees only. If you’d like to learn about all the different types of passes and how to register, go to the MWNY 2002
Macworld New York will be held July 15-19 at the Jacob J. Javits Center in New York City.
